UnrealCV - VALSE 18 Demo

Welcome to the VALSE18 demo page of UnrealCV. This page contains what you saw in our demo station.


The first video demonstrates various applications of UnrealCV, including:

  • Object mask generation in a virtual supermarket,
  • Bounding box generation,
  • Semantic point cloud generation,
  • Running a detection algorithm in a virtual scene,
  • Controlling hazardous factors to diagnose the robustness of stereo depth estimation algorithms,
  • Learning indoor navigation, robot manipulation and active object tracking via reinforcement learning.

The second video includes various 3D scenes that can be used in UnrealCV, including:

  • Diverse scenes,
  • Three example scenes, Matinee, RealisticRendering, Roborecall,
  • Physicial interaction,
  • Controlling the weather and the illumination.
